City made to work for win

Published Add your comment

Three stunning misses from Carlos Tevez almost proved costly as Manchester City narrowly edged out Blackpool 1-0 to keep level with neighbours United at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

Tevez missed a first-half penalty and then two sitters in the space of five minutes after the break, including an open goal as he fell after rounding the goalkeeper.

But all that came after Adam Johnson's 33rd-minute strike and the home side held on for all three points.
